Conservatives on social media were left fuming after comedian Sarah Silverman tweeted a joke about Jesus Christ.

“MERRY CHRISTMAS! Jesus was gender fluid!” Silverman wrote on her Twitter and Facebook accounts on December 25.

Conservative Christians were outraged by the suggestion that the son of God identified as both male and female — or somewhere in between. The website YoungCons.com raged that the tweet was a “desperate attempt to remain relevant,” while others on social media attacked the 45-year-old comedian for being impious on Christmas day.

“Jesus was not gender fluid! Says nowhere in the Bible or in any other teachings. Jesus was a man and you are Jewish and know nothing about my savior and shouldn’t be making jokes about Him on Christmas, the day of His birth. You just lost a fan,” one person wrote on Silverman’s Facebook page.

Others complained that Silverman had poked fun at Jesus, but not the Prophet Muhammad.

Published

Fox News on Friday examined why it would be a "big mistake" for Republicans to attempt to force through a nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

Following Ginsburg's death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed that Trump's nominee would receive a vote, but did not specify whether it would occur before the election or during the "lame duck" session of Congress that occurs before the 2020 election victors are sworn in.

But conservative pollster Scott Rasmussen warned Republicans it would be a bad idea during an appearance with Fox News personality Laura Ingraham.
